This worked for one extremely humble (wink wink) user:

in particula, temporarily disabling xpinstall.signatures.required :

 1) Open about:config
 2) Toggle the value of xpinstall.signatures.required so it becomes false.
 3) Restart the browser.

This epitome of submission did not need step 3).

I suggest writing one's elf a little note to try re-enabling this in
a day or two.

Good luck ;)
